We take an active role in the success of our athletes, working to ensure the running leg is just the beginning of a meaningful transformation and improved quality of life. Led by peer experts and specialized prosthetists, ABR’s subject matter experts share their knowledge in order to advance clinical support and improve options for amputee athletes.
And by utilizing our extensive roster of ABR athletes, we also build a team of mentors and supporters to help amputee athletes navigate obstacles, restore self-worth, and exceed expectations at improving their overall quality of life.

Amputee Educational Material
We know first hand how difficult it can be for a new amputee. Once you get over the shock of limb-loss, there are still every-day barriers and obstacles to overcome.
It can be difficult to navigate this on your own, or for parents trying to set their children up for success. That’s why we worked with athletes and specialized prosthetists to compile a list of free resources to help you get started on your journey.Discover Resources for Amputee Athletes

Here, you’ll also find a first-hand account of how important strength-building is for blade runner athletes, and how you use these muscles every day — regardless of if you’re running a race, playing sports, or simply climbing the stairs to your house.Find Exercises for Blade Runners
